Well since we need stables for those PCs and NPCs who need the wind rushing through their hair and a mighty stallion beneath them...err, yeah, stables. Within the plateau is a huge stables carved from the solid rock. It has room for hundreds of horses and was built by Hostris the Rider. The magic of Redalda suffses the cavern keeping the fodder fresh and the horses calm. Water is supplied from one of the cisterns (or it has its own) and magical lights keep away the dark. There is a long passageway for an exit that is guarded by watchposts and traps. The exit is hidden by a combination of natural features and magic. Access is obtained by a long pathway from the city whch is only wide enough for one person at a time. This pathway can be easily blocked to prevent enemy incursions.

This allows for cavalry raids on the enemy, the defenders sneaking out to look for fodder, Lunar efforts to find the stables, and a desparate (and poignant) final battle for the stables as defenders fight for the lives of their favourite steeds once the Lunars find it. Perhaps this is the spot that was broken into by the Shargashi and later flooded.
